Sumitra Rai, a 107-year-old woman, on Thursday became Sikkim's oldest registered voter to exercise franchise in the Lok Sabha elections. She came on a wheelchair to the Kamrang Government Secondary School polling booth in the Poklok Kamrang constituency to cast her vote.
Senior citizens stepped out in different parts of the country to exercise their franchise in the first phase of polling held in 91 Lok Sabha constituencies across 20 states and Union Territories.
In Gaya, CRPF personnel extended a helping hand to the aged voters, while in Nagpur, senior citizens led the way by their inspiring participation.
